Hearing aids: Myth vs. Fact
Hearing loss affects one in five Canadians, however, only 12% of them actually wear hearing aids according to this study by Stats Canada. So why don’t more people actually take action on their hearing loss? Here are some common hearing aid myths that could be holding you back from addressing something that so dearly impacts your life.
Confronting the stigma: here’s why needing hearing aids isn’t a bad thing
It’s no secret that the average person waits up to a decade before they decide to do something about their hearing loss and the stigma surrounding hearing aids is one of the leading factors. Many people suffering from hearing loss feel they don’t need hearing help, they convince themselves their hearing isn't that bad, they think hearing aids are ugly plastic looking things, or perhaps they feel embarrassed and self-conscious about needing help. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s OK to need hearing aids, and here’s why.
After our eyes, the most important sensory organ is our ears, thus hearing impairment has significant consequences. In most cases, hearing loss is age-related. However, it can also be triggered by loud noises or infections, or may be hereditary. Hearing loss may occur very suddenly, although in most cases it is gradual, and so you only become aware of it as it progresses. Fortunately, in most cases impaired hearing can be improved, or even fully corrected, using a hearing aid. Find out how.
